Angular Houses

Angular Houses

(religion, spiritualism, and occult)

The houses of an astrological chart are classified into three groups of four: angular houses (the first, fourth, seventh, and tenth), succedent houses (the second, fifth, eighth, and eleventh), and cadent houses (the third, sixth, ninth, and twelfth). In traditional astrology, angular houses were regarded as the most powerful houses in which planets could be positioned. Modern astrologers, however, tend to believe that planets placed in angular houses have the most influence on the outer, surface aspects of a person’s life, while planets placed in the cadent houses have the most impact on one’s inner life. Planets located in succedent houses mediate one’s inner and outer lives.
